Northampton have announced the signing of Tonga international back Nafi Tuitavake.

The 27-year-old centre or wing will move to Franklin's Gardens from Narbonne.

Tuitavake, who won his solitary cap earlier this year, has also represented New Zealand in the world sevens series and played Super Rugby for the Crusaders.

Northampton rugby director Jim Mallinder said: " We have been really impressed with what we have seen of Nafi.

"He has performed on lots of big stages, from Super Rugby and New Zealand sevens to international rugby, and we think his ability and experience from these will further enhance our squad.

"He is an exciting talent who has all the attributes to be a success here, and we look forward to welcoming him to Northampton."
